Temasek selling 700 million pounds of sterling bonds

According to Reuters, “Singapore state investor Temasek Holdings is selling 700 million pounds ($1.1 billion) worth of bonds to diversify its funding sources as it makes its foray into the sterling-denominated debt market.

Temasek will issue 200 million pounds of 12-year debt at 97 to 100 basis points above gilts and 500 million pounds of 30 year at 92 to 95 basis points above gilts, according to a term sheet seen by Reuters.

“Neither size will change,” according to the term sheet that was distributed to potential investors.

The Temasek bonds, rated AAA by both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s, will be priced before the end of London trading, said a source briefed on the issue.

Sources with knowledge of the deal said the Temasek fundraising was not linked to any investment in BP Plc or another British firm.””
